“No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.” –Lily Tomlin
Oh crap. Things like this could give us all hernias. Or maybe ulcers? I’m embarrassed to say I know at least one person who seems to regard the Donald as a serious candidate for president — and I’m not about to ask my benighted right-wing family! I like a joke as well as anyone. But damn it, some things are simply too stupid to be funny!
One thing worries me though. A rash promise like this could gain the fool a million votes. Maybe more. Style means so much more to many of us than substance, after all. Stay tuned — we can’t even guess how much sillier things will get. If anybody’s headed for New Zealand, I’ve got lots of tunes for the road, and I’ll gladly chip in for gas.

Leadership. Integrity. Spray. He’ll defeat ISIS single-handedly. He’ll build a wall on our southern border and make Mexico pay for it. He’d change his hair.
WINTERSET, Ia. – Donald Trump says if he gets elected president, he would have to change his hair style because he wouldn’t have time to maintain it, as he would be working his butt off in the White House.

Now there’s a lede. File this under Elections, Our Modern, and also under promises President Donald Trump would never be able to keep. Donald Trump without his hair helmet would be like Rick Santorum without his sanctimoniousness. Without his defining feature he’d just be an everyday, normal asshole.
“I would probably comb my hair back. Why? Because this thing is too hard to comb,” he said. “I wouldn’t have time, because if I were in the White House, I’d be working my ass off.”

What? He doesn’t have people for that? Hiring on a new staff to comb President Trump’s hair seems like one of those shovel-ready projects we’re always going on about. Create those jobs, Mr. Job Creator.
He’s almost certainly going to be in the first debate, you know. This is going to be so, so wonderful.
